Christmas Picture Dictionary & Activity Book for Early Learners


Christmas Picture Dictionary

Activity Book Suitable for Early Learners

At the outset I need to emphasize that our Picture Dictionaries were developed as fun educational activities. Christmas is an exciting time for children and anything with a Christmas theme can encourage a child to read, write, draw & create. This Christmas Themed Picture Dictionary has been developed for early learners, around preschool years, but like with many of our workbooks can be adapted to suit older or younger learners.

The book starts off with Christmas themed images, one per page from A-Z and provides the word in both standard handwriting font and handwriting tracing font, with training (writing) lines on the page to practice writing the word. This reinforces word/picture recognition and gives the learner a basis on which to associate letter and word formation. The book is packed full of activities that are illustrated with colourful Christmas images and so breaks the monotony that can and often does occur during learning time. The beauty of this book is that it can travel! It can be used as an activity during long car travel, or even for those couple of hours in an evening when everyone wants and needs their own space.

Included in the book is the Christmas Alphabet Song, along with picture/word matching games, Alphabetical Order! Wordsearches, a crossword puzzle and other fun and colourful educational games and activities. Some activities are suitable for the older child.

I am personally a fan of allowing every child to develop at his or her own pace and focus on the enhancing of those areas where clearly the child is steps ahead and encouraging and focusing on those areas where guidance and gentle assistance are required. Our aim is to make every activity fun and so encourage a love of learning.

In the activities in this book the learner is working towards inter alia the following Assessment Standards: Learning Outcome – Letters, Words/Picture Association & Relationships, Development of Early Critical Thinking Skills, Development of Fine Motor Skills, Recognition and use of words individually and alphabetically. At the end of this workbook the following are quite attainable by the very early learner:

  • Recognises and associates certain words with pictures;
  • Recognises and associates certain letters with pictures and/or words;
  • Uses critical thinking skills particularly during Wordsearch activities;
  • Recognises words in alphabetical order.
  • The child also works towards picture/word/number recognition and uses his or her creativity to reinforce their knowledge and recognition of number sequencing when undertaking fun dot-to-dot and colouring exercises.
  • Drawing, counting, cutting, pasting, word games and sequencing all assist in the development of a young child’s fine motor skills and early critical thinking skills.

For this simple fun workbook I have not included an answer sheet. I would however encourage you to encourage your child to do as many exercises as possible before checking for answers with you. I would also encourage that this book be done over a period of lessons or days and not in “one sitting” to prevent monotony of one subject.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
